WiP Wednesday #27

My rotary cutting. Let me show it to you.

I know it doesn't look like much, but I spent a ton of time going through my fabric scraps and piecing them (which I love), and then I spent a ton of time using a rotary cutter (which I hate) to make them into even strips. I'll take the strips and sew them into logcabin blocks. That's next on the agenda. I love using this method to create bright and random-patterned blocks.

So that's what I've been up to.I use the blocks in quilts, or I make them into fat quarter sized blocks and use them in patterns just like I would any other fat quarter. It's a great way to have less fabric waste.

Last week we were joined by Fabric Fascination and Sweet Dreams by Sarah.

Fabric Fascination has a few projects in the works, and they're all fabulous. Check out the results of her tiedye project:

It's so bright and airy and cheerful - what's not to love? She also shared a pillow and an adorable child's dress. Click on the image above to see her lovely projects. Or you can click here to visit her Etsy shop.

Sweet Dreams by Sarah shared a whole list of what she has in progress (which I thought was a neat idea), as well as something called a "Labor Day Sew In," which I didn't even know existed. So cool. You can read more about her projects here, or visit her Etsy shop to see more of her lovely work.

Ready to join up? Just add a link to your blog where you've written about any in-progress project you're working on. It's that easy. Thanks for dropping by!

How clever to use your scraps that way. My scrap pile (or bins) are seriously overloaded. I can see how much work you put into piecing and cutting those strips.

Jerimi, I love doing the same with my scraps. I just haven't had much time to piece them lately.

Yummy looking strips!
